Fall TV Review: The Walking Dead

Cable's dominance over Network TV, creatively speaking, continued with the premiere of AMC's THE WALKING DEAD, a zombie tale with graphic violence and a serious approach not seen on TV since...well, I can't recall a horror series about zombies ever airing. Though a tad slow at parts, the pilot did build nicely to an amazing shot of a horde of zombies convering on a mutilated horse in the dilapitated streets of Atlanta. An amazing image to a very promising series...something that just wouldnt work on network TV. And guess what? The ratings were HUGE! Well done. B
